Listen, I’ve not been super “chatty” about some things in my life, although I’m feeling like I want to start sharing things with you. I have suffered with depression off and on for most of my life. It’s a “side” to my anxiety diagnosis, but it’s there, and it’s real, and it isn’t fun. It isn’t a picnic. Anyone who has lived with depression or loved someone with it can understand what a rocky road depression is to travel down.
Right now, my depression isn’t in the forefront, but as with many things of the mind, it fluctuates. I know that some of you have struggled and lived with depression, in whatever form and for however long, and that is why I’m sharing this study about depression – because many times for me depression hit when finances were not great, and the thought of possibly helping someone else and getting paid would have been a good thing for me!
If you do suffer from depression, please call your doctor. Please. Don’t go that route alone. There are ways to get help.
